Former Bigg Boss contestant and nude yoga guru Vivek Mishra has opened up on being approached to be a part of the upcoming season of Bigg Boss OTT that will be streamed digitally on Voot. Since there is less stringent rules pertaining to the digital medium, Vivek was asked if he would like to participate in the show to add more spice to it by going nude for his yoga practice.
While speaking to a leading daily, Vivek said, “I was offered to be a part of OTT and do nude yoga or semi nude yoga to spice up the content. I was taken aback to hear it. They said that they are looking for 5 former contestants to spice up the show. Been there done that, so why would I perform nude yoga to add content to a pioneer reality show. I am too sexy and expensive to do that. I did say to them that if you expect me to do this then pay me Rs 50 lakhs for a day. I am not a starlet or want to get featured in a show on the basis on nude yoga."

Vivek has turned down the offer and has said that he would like to be a part of a quality project in five years rather than doing several meaningless shows. He further told the daily, “Honestly, the reality show doesn't run solely on anchor, of course it does contribute, but the major reason for its success is contestants and the content they give. So, whether it's Salman Khan, Karan Johar or even Jennifer Lopez, they will add on to the show with their personas, wit and glamour but the show will only be a hit if the contestants are good. I have said no to it, and I prefer to do one quality project in 5 years than meaningless projects, appearances, cameos. I have something lined up but it's a comedy zone and it is being very aesthetically shot.”
Bigg Boss OTT will be hosted by Karan Johar and Neha Bhasin has become the first confirmed contestant of the show.
